The Most Epic Insults From Game of Thrones

List Criteria: Vote up the best insults from Game of Thrones (series and books) or add an epic burn that isn't below.

All across the Seven Kingdoms, people are getting burned. And not just by dragons. Insults fly across the realm, whether your mother was a whore or you have no honor. No one is safe from a verbal lashing or quick put down. What are the best insults ever thrown down on Game of Thrones or in A Song of Ice and Fire?

Some characters are known for their sharp wit and frequent barbs. Tyrion Lannister is the most prolific insulter in Westeros. He can take it just as well as he can dish it out and is never wanting for a great comeback. Insults must run in the Lannister blood, as Cersei can also be relied upon for an epic burn. However, she usually lacks the wordplay and artistry of Tyrion, choosing instead to hurt her target as deeply as possible.

Many GoT insults focus on the target's birth. Was your mother a whore? Get ready to hear about it for the rest of your life. But nothing is off limits and there's no shortage of classic jabs at another person's looks, pointed statements about one's talents (or lack thereof) on the battlefield, and sarcastic mentions of a man's lack of honor.

Vote up the absolute best insults from Game of Thrones - either the HBO series or the George R. R. Martin books. If your favorite put down isn't here, add it below.
